BABY FAT: Act 1 A Screeching Weasel Rock Opera, Music and Lyrics: Ben Weasel, Libretto: Ben Weasel (after Victor Hugo and Francesco Maria Piave), Director: Michael Scholar, Jr.
Verdi's classic opera Rigoletto gets a punk rock overhaul by iconic frontman Ben Weasel of Screeching Weasel ("Cool Kids"). In this world premiere, we find ourselves in The Reptile House, a Chicago club where the house band Serpentello and its entourage are at the center of a dark vortex of debauchery from which seemingly no soul can escape unharmed.
